Recruiting Update - Hoops

Octavious Spann commits to Georgetown. This is a Georgia kid who had high interest in Georgia Tech, but was evidently further down on our list. GT never extended an offer. So he is now off the board.

However, it could increase our chances with De'Andre Bell, who visits GT this weekend. Bell is another Small Forward also with an offer from Georgetown. He is down to Georgetown and Georgia Tech. Interestingly, both Spann and Bell visited GTown together. The only issue is that we have yet to offer Bell a free ride. While that very well could happen this weekend during his visit, it may not. Part of the equation could be letting the current players spend some time with him (& vice versa) and the other part is probably waiting on CJ Miles.

So on the surface this seems to be a fine line to walk, but that's the way recruiting works.

On a separate note, Kevin Rogers is down to Baylor and Georgia Tech and has eyes for the NBA after 1-2 years, which could impact his decision (playing time key).
